Don Ebubeogu is an industrialist you’ll want to admire for what he’s doing with his organisation, Tiger Foods.
Imagine a home where you don’t have to worry about the quality of your Beans 🔹️
3 years ago we had a visitor from the United States of America who came to purchase dried Onion and Shallot from us.
After the tour of our facility, he was impressed with the modern pieces of equipment we have and the knowledge about food processing that we shared with him. He left us with one important request; BEANS.
His major problems with the Beans he sources from Nigeria are stones and insecticide residues. He wants us to package Beans that will stand the test of the American Food & Drug Agency.
We went to work, studied the characteristics of Nigerian Beans, worked with farmers and professional aggregators and developed a template that will ensure Beans are free of sand, stone, and insecticide residue.
After a tough start that saw to our parting of ways with one of our major partners on this Beans Project and the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic that disrupted international trade of our American importer, we went ahead to continue with the project to offer the Beans to the Nigerian market.
The samples we developed came out fine and were reviewed positively by third parties. We also registered with the American Food & Drug Agency (FDA).
We achieved the feat by buying from Farm Gate before the farmers/brokers start storage, and importing a seed processing plant to clean and pack the Beans automatically.
We adopted the steam sterilization option to sterilize the beans which reduces microbial loads and also kills insects/weevils found in any lot, using indirect heat. We pass the Beans through Air Screen Cleaner with a gravity table to remove dust, light impurities and sticks. The Beans are further passed through a Magnetic Separator to remove metal parts, soil and clods. The De-stoner machine, which is part of the plant, is used to remove stones as the Beans proceed to the Gravity Separator that separates good and bad Beans and then ends up with Vibrating Grader that grades small Beans from big ones, and broken Beans from whole Beans. The final stage is the packing machines that pack the products in 500g, 1kg and 4kg sizes.
Today Tiger Farms Limited, a subsidiary of Tiger Foods Limited, is pleased to inform you that our (your) Beans are ready for the market. And to celebrate the birth of this new addition to our family, we are offering about 5,000 free packs of TIGER BEANS to you and the public.
